Dear Family and Friends,
Thank you for all of your prayers this week on behalf of Arles. We were able to see a miracle this weekend because of it. A little background:
We met Arles about a month and a half ago. He had been praying one day to know where to go to church to change his life of partying and drinking. Later that day, he was driving his mustang down the street and we were biking. We yelled "Hola!!!" He pulled over and we began talking. He threw away all his alcohol later that night and has been changing his life ever since.
(He is kind of camera shy. This is him with a mango, in which we wrote his reading assignment)
1 Nephi 3:7 says:
Hermana Christensen and I had prayed and had received an answer from our Heavenly Father that Arles was supposed to be baptized this weekend. He too had prayed and received this answer. But there were so many obstacles in the way. Just one of the obstacles was that I got really sick. Because we are in a bike area, there was no option but to bike and we had a big service project that friday on the other side of the island. Long story short, we biked over 30 miles that day, and I felt awful. On top of that, Arles's phone stopped working and we couldn't get in contact with him. At one point I said this simple prayer "Heavenly Father, please let Arles answer the phone."
